French Quarter Band

French Quarter Band were a traditional New Orleans style Dixieland jazz band formed in the early 1970's by banjo player Les Moore (25 February 1936 – 5 May 2011).

Based in Manchester in England this British jazz band had such a flexible line-up that it was able to play multiple gigs simultaneously in different towns, and it has even been suggested that Les, who also played the euphonium and sang, was able to bi-locate.

Amongst the many musicians to have played with Les in the various line-ups of the French Quarter Band are Martyn Sharp, Arthur Stead, John Brunton, Stan Davies, Derek Galloway, Richard Slater, Annie Hawkins*, Ian Rose, John Rothwell, Jeff Roberts, Phil Mason, Gerry Owen, Ron Hopton, John Muskett, Ron McKay and many more.

* Double-bass player Annie Hawkins' section in the Who's Who of British Jazz, covers her work with Les and the Band.
